Chinese Grand Prix Review
If ever a better weekend occurred
for the BBC to be granted full coverage rights, it was most
certainly the Chinese Grand Prix. Dramatic racing action that
kept everyone who watched on the edge of their seat was the order
of the weekend. It was definitely the best of the year so
far, and probably Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg's favourite of his
entire time in Formula 1...
After 111 races, the young and extremely talented driver
has completed a near-flawless weekend with the victory of his
career. It started with an unbeatable lap in qualifying, and
the rest is very much in the same vein as the Sebastian Vettel or
Michael Schumacer of old, meaning complete domination. Based
off this performance, its fair to say that we think we may have not
seen the last of Rosberg on the top step of the podium this
But of course, as has been widely discussed throughout the
realms of social media, the main drama came from the battle of epic
proportions that occurred from 2nd position to 10th.
Hamilton, Button, Webber, Vettel, Maldonado, Alonso, Kobayashi,
Grosjean, Senna and Raikonnen were all involved in a fight down to
the wire for points positions. This gave way to some of the
most aggressive racing I've seen in a long time in Formula 1.
Raikonnen lead the train of cars for a good majority of the race
until his tyres (metaphorically) fell off the edge: that point in
time when all grip is lost and you're racing on severely blistered
and compromised wheels.
This left for some daring maneuvres
through the riskier dirty parts of the track to overtake a
disadvantaged Sebastian Vettel, racing with a slightly different
car setup to his teammate has proven rather unfortunate. And
as Button and Hamilton overtook him, Webber also went for the
overtake in quite the dramatic fashion, showing just how the Aussie
has become the faster out of the two.
We can't quite put across how unforgettably amazing this race
was, all eyes forward to another fantastic confrontation
